Forum sort order


I noticed the default sort order for the forum is to show the posts with the most replies first. That seems a bit odd for a forum. Would it not make sense to show the posts with the most recently replies first?

It is possible to re-sort the forum threads that way by clicking on the "Last post" header (twice). It would seem like a more sensible default.

I've checked and I see the same behaviour as both a registered (logged in) and anonymous user.

Cheers - Callum.

It was actually set to "most active first" I changed it to "newest first". We'll see if that makes a difference :-)

Aha, it has indeed. As both a registered and anonymous user I now see the most recently updated threads at the top of the list. :)
